If you don’t know who or what the Eymorg are you’ll be forgiven. Yet they and their ship appear on one of the classic TOS episodes ‘Spock’s Brain’. The Eymorg are the Eloi/Morlock-like race that nick Spock’s brain to power their planet-wide AI. Spoiler alert here – he gets his brain back. Whilst the premise […]Read more "Eymorg Starship"
Another issue, another Wolf 359 wreck. Of course the model does not appear in wrecked condition (though I’d love to see that one issue) but a pristine USS Princeton. It’s main claim to fame is its almost unique triple-nacelle design. The only other ship we have seen with three nacelles is the “All Good Things” […]Read more "Niagara Class"
I’m surprised this ship has appeared so late into the collection considering ‘Alice’ was the star of an entire episode. It wasn’t a particular great episode, but it was memorable enough. There are many ships already published that have had only fleeting screen time so it seems only fair for Alice to belong in the […]Read more "Alice"
The Emmette makes an appearance in every episode of ST:Enterprise, making it as commonly seen as the NX-01. However its time in the limelight is fleeting, appearing for a mere few seconds in the opening titles only. And when it does it is a shot of the back only, showing the ship’s oversized rocket assembly […]Read more "S. S. Emmette"
It’s been over a year since the last Romulan ship, the Scout Ship. Issue 123’s Science Vessel is almost the same model. It has the same thin body, sweeping wings and pointed warp nacelles. The two major differences are the addition of a tail and a different design for the cockpit section. The cockpit section […]Read more "Romulan Science Vessel"
The collection continues to scrape the barrel of Starfleet vessels yet has plundered another intriguing ship. Let’s get the obvious out of the way – this is half Voyager and half Maquis Fighter, but on the wrong scale. Voyager’s elongated saucer section is attached to the top of the fighter, but its wing tip weapons […]Read more "USS Yeager"
This blocky little ship fits into two categories – firstly that of ‘freighter’, a few of which we’ve seen in the collection and are generally ugly (Bajoran Freighter, Baxial, ECS Fortunate and ECS Horizon). Secondly it is a model that has been re-purposed many times in Star Trek for various ships (Again the Bajoran Freighter and the Smuggler’s Ship). The […]Read more "SS Xhosa"
